JOHN CALE ANNOUNCES SINGLE "I WANNA TALK 2 U,"
PRODUCED BY DANGER MOUSE
"I Wanna Talk 2 U" was co-produced by Danger Mouse and is now available for digital download. This is the opening track off John Cale's forthcoming album, the recently announced Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood, out October 2 on Domino Records imprint Double Six. As John says of the track:
"Danger Mouse and I kept trying to find time to record together and we found a 48-hour window a few years back and ended up with something like 3 or 4 songs. When I was recording this album, I realized I'd written a few songs in a similar vein and recalled one of the songs Brian and I started but had never finished. So I thought I'd finish writing it and see if it felt as close to the album as I had begun to envisage. Then when it was done, I thought, it's got the right opening vibe for my story!"
From the offset, John envisioned "an old-school Detroit vibe," something present in the track's urgent wah-wah and insistent stomp. Lyrically, he has eschewed the usual content of a broken heart or philandering cheater in favor of something all together more John Cale, something much more oblique.
